README file for Xymon ===================== What is it ? ------------ Xymon is a system for monitoring your network servers and applications. It is heavily inspired by the Big Brother tool, but is a complete re-implementation with a lot of added functionality and performance improvements. A slightly more detailed rationale for Xymon is in the docs/about.html file. NOTE: On Nov 10 2008, Hobbit was officially renamed to "Xymon". The name "Hobbit" is trademarked, and therefore cannot be used without permission from the trademark holders. How to install -------------- Detailed installation instructions are in the docs/install.html file. Essentially, it boils down to running ./configure make make install but do have a look at the install.html file for more detailed instructions. Documentation ------------- The docs/ directory holds information about the basic installation and configuration of Xymon. All of the tools and configuration files in Xymon have man-pages that are installed automatically when installing Xymon. The xymon(7) man page provides an introduction to Xymon and has pointers to the other man-pages of the package. License ------- Xymon is copyrighted (C) 2002-2011 by Henrik Storner.
